Must see in Majorca
Cala Torta or s’Aduaia is situated at 10 kilometres from Artà and it is the biggest beach of this municipality.
This beautiful sandy area between low rocky places and mounds of thyme, lentisc, small palms and some pine trees comes from a short sea inlet that finishes on a system of dunes.
This wild beach has a steep slope, it gets deep very soon as a result of the wind together with the swell that reaches the coast of Artà. The fact that the entrance of Cala Torta is very short explains that it is very exposed to the wind blowing from the northwest-north-northeast and east.
It is an excellent place for diving, as well as for anchoring boats on a sandy ground with a depth of five metres, with a manoeuvre that requires an enormous concentration. Nevertheless the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists and nudism is allowed. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Cala Ratjada, at 5,3 nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs on a sinuous, steep and badly preserved road. The car can be left for free in the surroundings. It is possible to reach this beach by bicycle from Capdepera: 22 kilometres and in Cala Mesquida you have to take a mountain track with red points, located next to a souvenir shop, that leads to this virgin sandy area. You can also walk from Cala Mesquida.
Because of this beach?s situation and exposure to winds, you must pay attention to weather conditions that make swimming and mooring boats unadvisable.
Cala Comtessa or Comptessa is situated at nine kilometres from Palma, between Punta des Bufador and Platja d’Illetes. This beach, es Fortí and Illetes are known as Illetes, and this cove is the smallest one amongst these three.
This u-shaped and small sea inlet finishes on a beach which is surrounded by pine trees and low rocky areas on the sides, which are also used by the visitors to sunbathe. In front of the coast you can see Illot de Caleta.
The marine and underwater conditions are excellent for anchoring boats in Cala Comtessa on a sandy ground with seaweed, where the depth ranges from two to three metres, but you should avoid passing between Illot de sa Caleta and Illot de s’Estenedor because of the sandbanks in this area.
The nearest port facilities are located at Puerto Portals, at 1,3 nautical miles, which is one of the best infrastructures of the Balearic archipelago and Europe, where you can find some of the most beautiful and expensive boats of the Mediterranean basin, some of the best restaurants of the Balearic Islands and some popular night clubs.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area next to the beach. There are some stairs that take to the beach. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at 300 metres.
Popularly known as “La Seu”. A Gothic cathedral from the 14th-16th centuries with later additions from different styles. Outstanding large rose window and baldaquin by Gaudí.
The construction of Majorca Cathedral, often called La Seu, began in the 13th century. It is a Levantine Gothic-style cathedral (characterised by using a German-style hall layout) and it has one of the largest rose windows in the world, known as “the Gothic eye”. Its nave is also one of the highest in any European Gothic cathedral.
The Cathedral’s history is closely linked to the island’s monarchy. The origins of the most important example of Majorcan Gothic date back to the 13th century. After the conquest of Madina Mayurqa in 1229, James I, King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona, ordered the old main mosque to be consecrated to the Virgin Mary as a place for Christian worship, and also the construction of a new building, in line with the style of that period.
